Good beach but not too much shade (compared to Playa de la Estation). Very clean and good for swimming - but as noted, the tide can make swimming difficult if it is out

If you're visiting this beach for swimming, you have to go during high tide, otherwise just chill around or under the trees by the shore. I swam with an eagle ray here... Visibility was not great though.

Easy to get to, just a short boat ride. We enjoyed just hanging out on the beach - water not clear for snorkeling or anything though

This is a nice beach, where a lot of the hotel guests are hanging out. When we came by in the morning, the beach was big, but when we came back from Las Grietas, the tide had taken a lot back.

Puerto Ayora is weak on beaches. Playa de los Alemanes is easy to reach: You take a water taxi (80 cents) and then you walk 200 metres to the beach. When the tide is high, it is a most beautiful tropical beach: White sand, mangroves,...More

This is a very nice little beach more secluded than the other beach on the island. You take a quick 80cent water taxi across the pier and take a short walk to the beach. Less crowded and no rocks like the other public beach.
